Movies: Looper (2012)

For my first post on movies I’ll go over the 2012 science fiction film Looper. The film, directed by Rian Johnson, stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.

Now I love movies and I love blogs but sometimes these online movie reviews can be way too long and drawn out. So I’ll keep my movie reviews succinct. Starting with this one.

Pros: Great acting. Great set-up. Great writing. Impressive use of special effects. Logical and simple explanation of time travel. Great art direction. And if the budget was really 30 million as imdb.com states, I’m impressed.

Cons: None in my book. The only reason I see you not liking this film is if you don’t like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and/or Science Fiction.

Is it worth it to go see the film in any theaters that it’s still in? Yes. Is it worth a rental or dvd purchase? Absolutely. It’s an engrossing film that will wrap you up in it’s world, if you’re paying attention. My only gripe was that I thought they’d go in another direction with the ending….but I have to remember that Stanley Kubrick wasn’t directing this. But that’s not a condemnation. The film is awesome.

M.A.V.B.L.O.G. Score: 10 out of 10. For what it is…..this film rocks!
